This school is horrible at best! Admin/staff teacher to test for EOG's while neglecting the basic's to prepare students for High School. Admin seem to have no people skills, and to hear the way they speak to students, makes you wonder who it was that hired them for the position they hold!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you can, move to a different location so that your son or daughter can attend a school better than this one!!!!!!!!!!

This school would be a excellent learning facility 'if' the leadership staff would be changed and better qualified teachers were hired. Go stand in any hall and you'll here teachers yelling completely out of control at students... I've done it before and heard for myself. Then, if the student(s) decide to defend themselves. A sure trip to the office is in order only for the assistant principal to 'always' find fault in the student. Onslow County needs a 'secret monitor to sit in or be 'allowed' to watch what happens and report back to the Board of Education. This should happen in all Onslow County Schools. I rate this school a 1 star, with reservations...

This is a very good school and the teachers communicate with families on a regular basis. The teachers are very caring and have innovative teaching techniques. I am very happy with this school, both my boys have attended for 6th, 7th and 8th grades. My children love it.

This school doesn't communicate well to parents and to each other. My sons says his homeroom teacher is mean and the assistant principal needs to do her job!!! Bullying is handled in an inappropriate manner and overall attitude of staff seems poor. Differences in students are seen as negative-shame on this school.

My all A report card daughter has been getting worse grades, the teachers there, she says is mean, ( Which I have met the teachers, and they have a bad attitude) She's found many cockroaches and bugs in her school, too. Her life is miserable thanks to South West Middle School
